Adult Education


The Government has committed to devolve the Adult Education Budget (AEB) in Liverpool City Region to the Combined Authority from the academic year 2019/20. This means that for the first time, the City Region will have the opportunity to tailor the skills and adult education system to better address local priorities.  North West Community Services Training have been successful in securing funding to run AEB provision from August 2019.


These programmes are FREE OF CHARGE to eligible staff members.
